He is seen climbing the stairs and trying to open the door to the house. Police found that such a person stayed in the vicinity but had not been seen after the murder.

    Later it was revealed that one-sided love is what turned fatal for 25-year-old Panchal. After the Vile Parle police arrested her neighbour Dhara from Kolkata for the murder, it came to light that he was not her ex-boyfriend but a spurned lover, who had been following her obsessively for quite sometime and she had rebuffed all his advances. Dhara confessed before the police that he had been in love with her and after her for a long time, but she had rejected him when he had expressed his feelings to her

    The accused used to keep an eye on the victim's each and every activity and knew her daily routine, what time she left the house and what time she returned. He had seen her come home drunk a number of times with her colleagues. On the day of the murder as well, she had brought her colleagues home. After a while, they had all left, forgetting to lock the door. The accused, who had been sitting outside the house and keeping a close watch on her, went in after they left. He allegedly tried to rape her, but when she fought back, he strangulated her with her jeans and then raped her. He later tried to burn her but failed there as well. In a bid to mislead the police and make it look like robbery was the motive, he took some of her jewellery and fled from the spot
